President Muhammadu Buhari has refused to oblige the demand of the new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who requested for a meeting with him.
The bloc which pulled out of the PDP to team up with the APC for the 2015 elections had demanded to meet with the president to discuss some pressing issues, The Cable reports.
But a presidential source told reporters that the president has vowed never to sit down for a discussion with the aggrieved members.
The source said the president made his stance known to governors elected on the platform of the APC when he met them recently.
“The president told the governors as well as national leaders of the party pointedly to resolve the issues,” the source said.
He said the issue was a party matter and he was not ready to sit with any faction.
“It is a party matter. I am not ready to sit down with any faction. If they have problems, they should go to the party. I will not interfere,” Buhari was quoted to have said.
“Governors as party leaders in the states should deal with all issues. Where there is need, the party leadership can come in. I will not get involved.”
